It's the day after Thanksgiving and you don't feel like cooking. So, make Turkey Leftover soup to get rid of some of those leftovers. Simply put everything in a pot and let it simmer all day. Enjoy Thanksgiving twice a year with this soup recipe.


  • 1 leftover turkey carcass
  • 4 quarts water
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 onions, chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 cup long-grain rice, uncooked
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups half-and-half or milk


  1. Place turkey carcass and water in a large Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour.
  2. Remove carcass from broth, and pick meat from bones. Set broth and meat aside. Measure broth; add water if necessary to measure 3 quarts.
  3. Heat butter in large Dutch oven; add flour, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. (Roux will be a very light color.) Stir onion, carrot and celery into roux; cook over medium heat 10 minutes, stirring often.
  4. Add broth, turkey, rice, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Add half-and-half, and cook until thoroughly heated.
